Nine Months

Dear Charlie,

Today you are nine months old.

There's so much I want to say in this month's letter, but sometimes words truly fail me. I don't know what to say in regards to all that's been going on.

So I'll just say this.

I am not at my best these days. Haven't been for quite some time now.

But I'm working on it. Like everyone else in this world, I'm not perfect. I so badly wanted to be my best for you, kiddo, and the sad fact is, I've fallen way short of being the mother I wanted to be.

But I am your mother. And you are my son. And nothing, nothing, will ever stop me from loving you.

And that? That, my love, is everything.

I am still going to steal your kid. It's true. One of these days!

He's so BIG! Hope you are hanging in there. <3

Although you may not feel like you're measuring up, his smile shows that you're exactly the mom he needs. Cheer up buttercup :)
